When parents decide to separate or get a divorce their children are necessarily impacted in a variety of ways.  Provided they are safe and cared for in an appropriate manner, children have the right to enjoy time with both of their parents even when the parents are no longer together. This also means that California parents owe a duty to their children to co-parent effectively so that their children receive the benefit of that time with both parents.

When determining what custody arrangement is in the best interest of a child, a judge may consider many different factors. Some of those factors include:

California Custody Law gives the court a large degree of discretion, and an experienced child custody attorney can help navigate the factors the court may consider in determining child custody in the state of California.

Child Custody Considerations Applied by Family Courts in Riverside, Moreno Valley, Corona, Murrieta, Temecula, & Hemet, California

Custody and visitation orders are made with the child’s best interests as the determining factor. In evaluating what is in a child’s best interest, the court can consider any relevant facts and circumstances, but it must consider any impact that a particular custodial schedule would have on the child’s health, safety, and welfare.

Parents will either share joint legal custody of their child, or one parent will have sole legal custody of the child. Legal custody has to do with decision-making (i.e. enrollment in school, choosing a doctor and dentist, participation in extra-curricular activities, etc.)

Parents will also either share joint physical custody of their child or one parent will have sole physical or primary physical custody of the child. Physical custody has more to do with where the child will be on any given day and the custody arrangement or schedule the parents will follow.

Additionally, unless a child’s health, safety, and welfare would be undermined, these orders must ensure the child has frequent and continuing contact with both parents. Parental separation is already very complicated, and children often feel torn about the circumstances that will determine where they live, how they will travel, and how much time they get to spend with each parent.

Family Code 3040 (a)(1) also creates a mandate on the family court to consider which parent is more likely to facilitate frequent and continuing contact with the other parent.  This provision can create problems for parents who are unable to co-parent and parents who engage in alienating behaviors.

Many child custody cases are filled with complications and intricacies requiring the knowledge and skill of an experienced child custody lawyer.  We provide a free consultation to anyone who is seeking to put the best interests of their child first.

I'm very happy I found Talkov Law to help me navigate through a real estate matter. After some google... searches on a specific type of legal course of action, Talkov's blog articles came up, and it appeared Scott knew what he was talking about. I had reached out to several attorneys but Scott gave a much more complete overview of my options and background research on my specific case.There were times when I was quite stressed from the lawsuit, but Scott helped stand up for me against the other side. Time over the weekend was put in at one point to enter an opposition document that we did not receive adequate notice for. That document dealt a real blow to the opposing side.In the end, we reached a settlement and I am glad to have had Scott help me through this ordeal.read more

It is without question that Scott Talkov is one of the most genuine, forthright, and exemplary attorneys we... could have found. After purchasing our home, we were wrongfully brought into a dispute that had no relation to our real estate transaction. After speaking with multiple firms who seemed to either complicate the matter or were quick to ask for a substantial retainer, we were fortunate to have contacted the Talkov Law Firm. Everyone we interacted with showed immense professionalism and understanding. Scott and his firm came up with solutions that were smart, tactful and cognizant of the facts related to the issue at hand. We truly appreciate the Talkov firm and recommend them in the highest regard.read more
